Review Santa Fe: Molly Lamb: Ghost Stepping
Molly Lamb‘s project, Ghost Stepping, examines the idea of the transience of objects as a family shifts into a new order after the passing of a loved one. Molly brought a unique, layered, and well-seen portfolio to Review Santa Fe with each image reflecting more than what was in front of the camera. There is an other worldly quality to the work celebrating the ethereal qualities that reflect the transitory nature of existence.
Molly holds an MFA in Photography from Massachusetts College of Art and Design and a BA in American Studies from the University of Massachusetts, Boston. Her work has been exhibited nationally, most recently at the Griffin Museum of Photography and at the Danforth Museum of Art. She has also worked as a photojournalist for several newspapers and she currently teaches photography at Massachusetts College of Art and Design and The New England Institute of Art.
It probably began with the crepe myrtle tree outside my window.
The tangle of branches made sense to me, and this became the way I made sense of everything that didn’t.
Over the years, I have inherited the belongings of most of my family. Packing and unpacking them has become an internal conversation about the reach of the past into the present. The belongings they left behind, elusive memories, and contradictory family stories form the precarious bedrock upon which my present reality rests. These photographs are a meditation on the fragments and layers that shape my personal landscape, its erosion, and its transformation.
